We played a new game!! It is called "I am going to California and I am taking _______." Students had to generate a word with the /c/, /k/ sound. (For example, I am going to California and I am taking candy.)
As writers we can add to our How To books to help the readers.
As readers we can use letter sound knowledge to help us read.
We blended milk and chocolate syrup to give the children a visual of blending.
Our lesson on blends turned into a science lesson as well. The children were amazed how the syrup sank to the bottom of the glass of milk!
Students generated "st" blend words like stapler, stop, etc.
We are noticing and naming what stories are about and how the details or examples in the story give the readers lots of information.
As Mathematicians we can compose and decompose teen numbers.
As Social Scientists, we will explore our presidents and national symbols.
